The International Congress and Convention Association and BestCities Global Alliance announced its final shortlist for the 2018 Incredible Impacts Program, with SER as one of the 12 finalists! The Incredible Impacts Program “celebrates the 'beyond tourism' value of international association meetings to create a powerful platform to advocate their positive societal impact.” The three meetings judged as showing the greatest impact will be awarded grants of 7,500 USD. The SER2019 World Conference in South Africa exemplifies the values of the Incredible Impacts program, from promoting knowledge transfer to improve international policies and public awareness of ecological restoration. 

Paul Vallee, Managing Director of BestCities said: “The Incredible Impacts Programme is a showcase of global excellence of lasting legacies within the meetings and events industry… It is hugely encouraging to see these values being replicated by associations the world over, who are making lasting contributions to the destinations they visit.”

Winners will be announced after September 10.
